. amid-all of this in the world, today washington was consumed with two issues. the first was the start of negotiations to head off a deliberate crisis that d.c. created for itself so they could come to a few new deal between the parties and congress on spending and taxes and the deficit. that negotiation started today. the white house said top staffers will be continuing those negotiations that started today even while the president is off on this big historic trip to asia. the other thing consuming washington is the investigation into what happened in benghazi. in the midst of his sex scandal, but the head of the cia david petraeus testified to congress today about libya behind closed doors. we'll have more on that in a moment. but while all of this is unfolding in american politics, globally and in washington, there's a whole other level of things unfolding in american politics that's happening further down the food chain. what's happening there, i think, is rather off the hook. in a way that might be good news for the country. but for now, it's just worth seeing. >> a controversial

is not going to be shying away from that fight. big news from washington tonight. >>> the context for the start of a second term here in terms of this president could not be more stark. we think about this historically. when ronald reagan was reelected in 1984, ronald reagan won this many states on the the electoral map. you can stop your counting. he won 49. ronald reagan, 49 states. it was a landslide. look at the electoral vote tally. ronald reagan, 525, walter mandale, 25. president reagan decided what he was going to sail toward, what he would prioritize after that overwhelming endorsement of him as president, what he would work on was war in central america. >> president reagan warned of a new danger, support for the leftist government from nicaragua. the president sees that as still another reason we should renew our support of the rebels. >> a new danger we see in central america is the support being given by gadhafi's libya and most recently iran. >> the iranian connection was brought up as he put pressure on congress to resume funding for the rebels in nicaragua. >> countering this by

is obviously not a disqualifying thing in washington, right? you don't have to stop being a senator or stop being a presidential candidate or stop being a major administration official, just for saying something wrong on a sunday show. it may be should mean that you don't get to do the sunday shows so much, though, right? this is all of 2012, right here. we are obviously mid-november right now. all of the dates in red on this calendar here, those are all of the sundays we have had this year. this is how many times john mccain has been on the sunday shows in that time. uh-huh, yes. people are sometimes wrong. it happens. but that is not a reason for us as a country to not have a secretary of state, right? i mean, when you are wrong a lot on the sunday shows, it may be a reason to not keep putting that same old wrong guy on the sunday shows, but not having a secretary of state, no. actually, there's no reason not to keep putting john mccain on the sunday shows. look, this sunday, john mccain appearing exclusively to share his views on benghazi, all things foreign affairs. john mccain on a sun
